Sept 17 2016 Lisbon-Jeronimo's Monastery-Sintra
Lisbon was the center of Europe's longest-lived overseas empire. Morning sightseeing with a Local Guide features a
drive through the Baixa quarter's main squares and a walk through the cobblestone alleys of quaint ALFAMA, the
popular quarter of the seamen and Fado singers. Drive along the grand Avenida da Liberdade up to Pombal Square.
Stop for pictures of Belem Tower, guarding the mouth of the Tagus, and the Monument to the Discoverers. Next, visit
JERONIMOS MONASTERY with the tomb of Vasco da Gama. In the afternoon, an exciting optional excursion is available
to Sintra and the royal palace of Queluz.
